I assume you meant "info", not "status". If so, that doesn't look all
that interesting:

[torvalds@i5 linux]$ cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_drpc_info
HD boost: no
Boost freq: 0
HW control enabled: no
SW control enabled: no
Gated voltage change: no
Starting frequency: P0
Max P-state: P0
Min P-state: P0
RS1 VID: 0
RS2 VID: 38
Render standby enabled: yes
[torvalds@i5 linux]$ cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_cur_delayinfo
Requested P-state: 0
Requested VID: 0
Current VID: 37
Current P-state: 0

(This is in the "working state" - I rebooted because I can't stand
working with a machine that feels like a 110baud terminal).

I don't have this commit at all, it wasn't part of the merged series.
